A little slow to start but a good book over all
Lily soon finds out that she actually only bought 51%(controlling interest) of the boat. Enter Blake Matthews, he won 49% ownership from a card game with Jean Luc Champney. He plans to turn the boat into a floating casino and Lily wants to run cargo… While Lily and Blake figure out how to work together and make money Jean Luc secretly plans to find a way to get his boat back even if it means breaking Lily’s heart. Blake at first can’t stand Lily but soon finds himself wanting to make her happy and his heart slowly falling for her. Will an accident keep them apart forever or help them find true love?
At first as I started to read this book I was not sure if I was going to like it but as I got deeper into the story I found myself really enjoying this book and looking forward to seeing how everything worked out.
What I liked: The authors did a great job of developing the characters. The story was also interesting and funny. The banter between Lily and Blake was amusing at times. I always enjoy a book where the female character is strong and bold. The books are always more fun. I also have not read any books about steamboats so that was quite interesting to learn about.
What I did not like: The first few chapters dragged on for me. It was nice that the characters where so well developed but it took until about 25% in for the story line to pick up and get really interesting.
Over all this was a fun book to read and I really enjoyed it. The romance was a good story and the suspense fit well into the storyline with out it feeling like it didn’t belong. I am really looking forward to the rest of this series and getting to know Lily’s two sisters and hear their story.

A sweet romance that bends history
A woman owning and running a boat? Not in that day and age. A paddlewheeler that $50 gold would buy half interest? Again unbelievab...
